2018 will forever be remembered by Braun Strowman, Nia Jax, Carmella, Buddy Murphy, Ronda Rousey and more as the year in which they captured their very first titles on WWE's main roster.
The differences between some reigns couldn't be bigger. Braun's Raw Tag Title triumph with 10-year old Nicholas at WrestleMania won't be recalled with the same historical importance as Ronda snatching the brand's Women's Title at SummerSlam, for example, but Strowman will go on to bigger and better things.
'Bigger and better things' is precisely what everyone on this list will experience in 2019, and most will have more of an impact than Braun and some ref's kid did in New Orleans. Whether it's bold or not, we predict that every single one of the superstars included here will hold a championship of some description on Raw or SmackDown over the next 12 months.
How successful those title reigns are is another question. Titles change hands pretty swiftly in the modern era, and there are no guarantees that new champs will enjoy tenure that either helps the belt itself or gets them over with fans...
